What makes Greyhound P.R.I.D.E?
Greyhound P.R.I.D.E Mission
The mission of The Greyhound P.R.I.D.E. Program is to provide academic and social support for incoming students from diverse cultural backgrounds. The program provides awareness and appreciation of cultural, social and ethnic differences and aims to increase acceptance of difference among members of the student body as a whole. Through programming and tailored support this year long initiative builds an inclusive community that supports incoming first year and returning students in a holistic manner.
The Greyhound P.R.I.D.E. program consists of three important elements: the P.R.I.D.E. Mentors, the events and programming held by the Center for Intercultural Advancement and the advising of the Director and Assistant Director of Intercultural Advancement.
The Greyhound P.R.I.D.E Mentors
The Greyhound P.R.I.D.E. Mentors are a group of dedicated and talented returning students who are trained to work with the incoming students. They are assigned a match at the start of the academic semester and offer advice, support, and help. They attend programs that are meant to bridge social gaps and bring students together and help students learn about and discuss varying issues in our society.
Programming and Events
The Center for Intercultural Advancement and Global Inclusion sponsors programs and events that serve to enhance the Moravian College communities understanding of issues involving diversity and inclusion.
Greyhound P.R.I.D.E. Mentors are encouraged to schedule time with their mentee outside of the planned programs and events. Whether it is educational or a simple get-together in a dorm common room, programming is successful and crucial in establishing substantial connections between the students, which in turn help them to understand each other's challenges, aspirations and goals.
